Farm Wineries are highly regulated businesses. Your livelihood depends on understanding the rules around what is permitted and being able to impact changing policy going forward.
Join IWVA for the 2024 Winter Meeting and Legislative Tasting on Tuesday, February 13 to gain a better understanding of the legislative process that is so important to your operations.
Business Meeting & Legislative Update:
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
We will start the day with a membership business meeting and legislative update from our lobby team. All bills that impact farm wineries and are actively being debated by the Indiana General Assembly will be covered.
Lunch will be included.
Statehouse Visits & Advocacy Day
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
At 1:00 we will host a table at the Indiana Statehouse and interact with legislators as they move through the building. We will also set up a handful of short meet & greet meetings with your local legislators.
The legislative session will start in both the House and Senate at 1:30, giving you a great opportunity to go up to the gallery of either chamber to watch the action in person.
Craft Legislative Tasting
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Mid-afternoon, we will head over to the Indianapolis Artsgarden for a craft legislative tasting, hosted jointly by IWVA, the Brewers of Indiana Guild, and the Indiana Distillers Guild.
Legislators and their guests will be invited to sample Indiana wine, beer and spirits from 4:00-6:00.
Wineries who are interested in pouring for this tasting event should contact Rachel Gibson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited spaces are available.
